We stopped here for a light supper and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food. Love the nostalgic atmosphere. And the service was outstanding! I asked for a dessert not on the menu and they prepared it for me. I'll definitely revisit this diner...More

Spent one night here on the way to the Grand Canyon. Had the green chili verde burrito. It was so big that I couldn't finish it....and that's unusual! Place was clean, with cute fixtures, and service was fine. Would definitely stop here again.
